So would it make you jealous if I told you I actually own the 2nd prototype of Boardmans Lotus?
I aquired it from Mr Burrows a few years back (just before riding it in the Queens Golden Jubilee parade back in 2002). It's been featured in a number of publications and was tested on both road and track by Mike and Chris before the Lotus badged production run.

Note the similarity to Chris' bike, but NOT to the badge similar lotus above.

Boardman's bikes were works of art indeed, you can see who had the most financial backing, poor old Obree made his bikes in his shed out of old washing machine parts and the like! He was a "superman".
